The Road to El Dorado

Last Updated: 06-01-2011


Shoes: Bought.

Shirt: The shirt is made of red broadcloth and my mom helped me put it together, the sleeves were the fun part has we custom shaped them. We didn't make them too big so that they wouldn't be too awkward in crowded spaces (ie Dealer's room). The collar was lots of fun xD

Pants: I took an old pair of pants and hemmed them to the correct length. I didn't add elastics for comfort reasons. And my belt is a men's medium in brown.

Wig: I ordered a powder yellow, medium length, from Cosplay.com Shopping. The bangs are pushed out of the way and secured, while one piece is hair glued in piece (his emotion cow-lick). The wig was cut by my friend Michelle to length, and I fixed up the trims.

Beard & Thick Eyebrows: To be done using makeup.

Other:
I made the map to El Dorado using muslin sheeting. I tea-stained it, and after two hours of drying, I sketched out the map, which took me about 4-6 hours to do to my satisfaction. After the sketch was finished, I inked it using black fabric markers, and then added all the colours. I did a touch more tea-staining at the edges. The map took a total of 10 hours to make.
I made 26 pieces of gold using small stones from my walkway. I made two bags to carry them using muslin, and pulling jute twine through to make a drawstring. The one bag is now in possession of 12Dee3 who is my Tulio.
As a final prop, for private photoshoot only, I'll have my REAL guitar. I can't play worth shit, but my strumming's good. And at least, it will make for more interesting photos. And it will give me an excuse to do the face.

Awards

Anime North 2011 - Being told I made someone's day (20 times) - I know it's not really an award, but it was rewarding.
